Castlerigg Stone Circle . The Lake District

Castlerigg stone circle is a druids stone circle located near Keswick. I don’t know any of the history about it, but it’s a circle of rocks surrounded by the Lake District fells and it looks pretty nice.

From the stone circle you can look up at Skiddaw, Catbells, Blencathra and the Helvellyn range
